Winter Ride 2022

Lynden Public School’s Winter Ride program is open to all student’s in the Lynden area (Lynden Public, Lynden Christian, Ebenezer, homeschool, etc.) in grades 6 through 12. The program offers a multi-week chaperoned bus ride up to the Mt. Baker Ski Area and discounted lessons. Rental equipment is also available. See prices below. Sign-ups begin in early January.

The bus leaves Lynden High School at 7:00 a.m. sharp. Don’t be late.
Try to be there by 6:45. The bus arrives at Mt. Baker usually about 8:30ish weather depending.
Students are to get back on the bus by 3:00 p.m.
The bus usually arrives back at LHS by about 4:30 p.m.
Many students have cell phones or can borrow a chaperone’s so that they can call a parent as we get close to Lynden. That way they do not have to wait at the high school very long.

Winter Ride 2021-2022

Over the past few months many of us coordinators have met with Mt Baker Ski Area to discuss their concerns about WR, large crowds, weather conditions, etc. The ski area has seen quite a bit of growth over the past few years and they are feeling too busy in January and February to really give the WR kids the attention they feel they need to. 

So, Mt Baker is changing the WR program.

The program will now only be four Saturdays in March – March 5 through 26 2022.
Lessons will be required for all participants.

There are some pros and cons to this.

Pros: Better weather and usually better ski conditions in March

Less crowded

WR program will be cheaper, so more affordable to more students

Less of a commitment for all involved

Cons: May conflict with spring sports

That first Saturday is during Lynden’s Mid-Winter Break

Many participants liked the eight trips we usually took.

We may actually have less interest in the program that before.

I certainly have mixed feelings about the change. I understand Baker’s reasoning, but worry it may negatively affect Lynden’s WR program.

I’ll be updating our webpage with more info as I get it. www.lyndenwinterride.org

Here is Baker’s WR page with many more details/prices and some great videos explaining the change and their reasoning.
